    It is a wonderful Hostel. Very short walk from the center& big grocery shop right in front of the hostel. The staff was wonderful and helpful! Every night they cook diner for the guest. As well, they brought us to different bars, including a boat party. Strong little community.

    Haven't stayed at another hostel in Faro but I'd safely say this is the best one. Just a really nice community vibe with a lot of interaction between people. Staff also super friendly and accommodating.

    Nice staff. They cook dinner every night (optional buy in) and its very tasty and lots of food! The staff will take you out to bars every night if you want and have a good games/predrinking space.

    Best hostel! Staff are hilarious and friendly and provide top entertainment every night. Very chill beer garden-esque social area complete with a hammock, and a self service bar, very ideal. Ask Kate about her secret talent x

    Awesome quirky hostel, with great staff. Not super super central but I preferred it because I stayed at another hostel and literally couldn’t sleep because there was so much noise from the streets.

    Great place, can highly recommend. The staff really went out of their way to bring people together and create a fun atmosphere. Recommend for solo travelers. Great location next to a giant grocery store and good local restaurant, not too far from main bus station. My only complaint was there was no wifi the whole weekend I was there. Kind of a big deal at a hostel. I asked the staff many times why it wasnt working.. no one really gave a good answer. HOpefully they can get that resolved.

    Good staff, bar tab idea works well and can imagine it being very busy on nights when more people. Downside being cleanliness in the kitchen, fairly good for the most part but lots of ants in one of the untensilles draws. Otherwise would definitely use again

    Cool atmosphere and great hostel dinners to get everyone meeting each other. Only complaint is they have a bit of an bed bug issue at the moment. Would probably wait until they fix that before booking unless you want some sleeping buddies.
